Reading for pleasure

Last year we launched ‘Reading for Pleasure’ at High View. Developing a love of reading is one of the most powerful ways of ensuring that children reach their potential. The more fun you have when reading with your child, the more likely you are to instill a love of reading. Thank you for all your support with your child’s reading. Many children have already won their 15 and 30 reads.

Some children have now moved onto their 60th and even their 100th read. We are very proud of their accomplishment. For this they will receive a book of their choice and their photograph in the gallery below. The children also tell us why reading is important to them.
